Texans signed CB Aaron Colvin, formerly of the Jaguars, to a four-year contract.
Colvin played an important role as Jacksonville's slot corner last year, earning a positive grade from ProFootballFocus over 700 defensive snaps. It's a needed addition for the Texans, who were manhandled in the secondary last year. It's unclear if this ends Houston's pursuit of Malcolm Butler, who is also drawing interest from the Matt Patricia-coached Lions. Mar 13 - 3:21 PM

Beat writer Hays Carlyon doesn't expect the Jaguars to be able to re-sign impending free agent CB Aaron Colvin.

Outside CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye get all the love in Jacksonville, but Colvin is one of the best slot corners in the game and is/was a big part of the Jaguars' defense. Per Pro Football Focus, Colvin didn't allow a single touchdown in his coverage, and his 0.76 yards per snap in coverage was third-best among all slot corners. Colvin, 26, is one of the top corners set to hit the market.

According to ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco, the team "really like(s)" Aaron Colvin inside as the slot corner.

Colvin (6'/194) is entering the final year of his rookie deal after being a fourth-rounder in 2014. The Jaguars got him as a draft-day steal after Colvin tore his ACL at Oklahoma. He played just 292 snaps in 2016 following a four-game suspension and season-ending ankle injury but did receive plus marks for his coverage from Pro Football Focus. With Jalen Ramsey outside and Colvin inside, cornerback isn't as big of a need for the Jaguars as offensive line and pass rush.

Jaguars placed CB Aaron Colvin (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

G Chris Reed (toe) is also headed to I.R. with practice squad players Akeem Davis and Tony Washington taking their spots on the active roster. Colvin played reasonably well this year, earning a positive grade in coverage from Pro Football Focus. He sat out the first four games while serving a PED suspension.

Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin left Sunday's Week 15 game against the Texans with an ankle injury and is questionable to return.

Colvin went down early in the second quarter. He didn't record any statistics before exiting. Colvin never went to the locker room, so it's possible he could return later on.

Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin exited Week 11 against the Lions with a concussion.

He was taken to the locker room to be evaluated early in the game before being ruled out in the second quarter. Davon House could see some more snaps with Colvin out.

Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin's four-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy has ended.

Colvin started 15 games last season, but is returning as the Jags' No. 4 corner behind Jalen Ramsey, Davon House and Prince Amukamara. Colvin is most effective in the slot.

NFL suspended Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin four games for violating the league's policy on PEDs.

GM Dave Caldwell admitted the Jags have known about Colvin's suspension for some time, and it's possible it factored into the signing of Prince Amukamara. Colvin started 15 games last season, recording 73 tackles and four sacks. "I apologize to my family, the Jaguars organization, especially my coaches and teammates, as well as all the Jaguars fans that have been supportive of me since I was drafted here in 2014," said Colvin on Twitter. "I will learn from this." When Colvin gets off suspension in Week 5, he should retake the Jaguars' nickel corner role.

Jaguars CB Aaron Colvin exited the team's Week 1 game against the Panthers with a shoulder injury.

Second-year CB Aaron Colvin has supplanted Demetrius McCray as the starter opposite Davon House.

Colvin is working as an outside corner in base sets and covering the slot in nickel. Injury concerns pushed Colvin to the fourth round last year, but he is a first-round talent who is apparently putting it on display in camp. He should offer a big boost to the Jaguars' pass defense.

Second-year CB Aaron Colvin is expected to open the season as a starter.

Colvin appears to be outplaying Demetrius McCray opposite Davon House. A 2014 fourth-round pick, Colvin redshirted most of his rookie year on the injured reserve-designated for return list after tearing his ACL at the 2014 Senior Bowl. Colvin might have been a first-round pick if healthy last offseason. In nickel, Colvin figures to cover the slot with McCray entering outside.

Jaguars second-year CB Aaron Colvin "stood out consistently" during the offseason program.

A torn ACL suffered in the Senior Bowl prevented Colvin from playing early his rookie year, but he recovered in time to make six appearances late in the season. Now completely healthy and up to 197 pounds, Colvin should take a big step forward as a sophomore. He is the favorite to win the Jaguars' first-team slot corner job in camp.

Jaguars second-year CB Aaron Colvin is up to 197 pounds.

Colvin tipped the scales at 177 at last year's Combine following a torn ACL at the Senior Bowl and finished the season at 186. At 5-foot-11, he can carry the added weight. Colvin made six appearances at the end of last season after being activated from the reserve/NFI list. He has a chance to win the Jaguars' first-team slot cornerback job in training camp.

Jaguars activated CB Aaron Colvin (knee) off the reserve/NFI list.

Colvin tore his ACL at the Senior Bowl, but has been practicing for the past few weeks. He's expected to make his NFL debut when the Jaguars come out of their bye in Week 12. Jacksonville has been decimated by injuries at corner.
